Hello , I’m Adi. I’m a little late starting off here , but this sounded too amazing for me to able to wait for the next time something like this came around.
So far , I have worked as a high-volume cook, math tutor, outdoor science teacher, EMT medic, summer camp director and tree climbing instructor .
Nothing like making an introduction in the 11th hour! I happened upon EdCamp, and then onto this open course. I am a new educator (3rd grade, but next year is too far away to cal!), forward-thinking and naively but confidently optimistic about the potential future directions of education (especially blended learning and problem-based approaches). I found the description of this course and project intriguing, and decided to hop on the LCL-train as a curious observer (to start!)
I’m a System Analyst and mother of two beautiful children and because of them I ended up in this group
I’m also working on the creation of a ONG to spread this passion to the ones that don’t have access to technology and give them the tools to change their future.
Hi my name is Sam. I teach core courses in science for undergraduates at Boston University and I teach in the Sustainable Design MS compatible partners program at the Boston Architectural College.

I have been encouraging my students to use contemplative observation, reflection and play(!) to help them wrap their heads around science and design learning.
